Amedei has released a new 50g bar called 9 (75%). It's now for sale in Sweden (in selected shops).
The price in the shop where I saw it was the same as Chuao.
This is what you can read on the back of the bar:
The "family treasure". This blend fully express the Amedei philosophy. Combined here are cacaos from 9 plantations, which over the years, have been discovered, restored and rendered productive again by Alessio Tessieri:
an exceptional raw material. From this Cecilia created a powerful and balanced dark chocolate, in which the aromas of the plantations persists in the unmisstakable flavour of this chocolate.

Yesterday I visit my local Amedei provider (www.oliva-verde.de). They told me, that there will be more new Amedei products. The “Cioccolato Fondente extra con Mandorle”, “Cioccolato al latte bianco con pistacchi”, Toscano White Napolitains, little boxes containing four Napolitains (available in all six Cru) and the new bar 9 will also be available in Napolitains and in a 1 kg bar. It was a great and enjoyable visit. They even gave me a sample of the new bar 9. I haven’t tasted it until now, but I think I will try it today. I’m really curious about how it tastes.
